Ever since I was invited to spend the day at the White House, I've been inspired to share with readers all about the family focused communications MommyBlogExpert often receives from the Oval Office and other government agencies and officials in Washington D.C. Several weeks ago you may recall this MBE post on a White House Father's Day message acknowledging how much harder today's fathers work outside and inside the home than previous generations.
A few pictures I took during my visit to the White House in December...

The time is now to start changing all that simply because we owe it to our kids, who collectively represent the future of America. That's what this summit is all about.

The summit taking place on June 23, 2014 is being hosted by the White House, the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Center for American Progress (CAP). The purpose of the event is to set an agenda for this century's workplace that supports the American Family with a special focus on women and their children. Among issues that the summit will address are things like workplace flexibility, equal pay regardless of gender, workplace discrimination, worker retention and promotion, and childcare and early child education.
You're invited to join me in watching The White House Summit on Working Families LIVE this morning on your computer or smartphone wherever you may be. The online event starts at 9 a.m. Eastern Time so I'll be up bright and early at 6 a.m. here in California.
